NeoMagic drivers

Does anyone know where I can get drivers for the Neomagic NM2200 video chipset? Google searching shows that a lot of people have had trouble with neomagic but none of them showed where to get the drivers from.

If you are using a modern Linux system with graphics enabled, then the driver (called "neomagic") is likely already installed. But you must also edit the device section of your xorg.conf file to make Xorg use the neomagic driver. What GNU/Linux distribution are you using by the way?
